CiCADA's mission is to assist marginalized, disadvantaged and First Nations women and youth to overcome barriers to their personal and professional success. We connect participants to the creative industries and demonstrate how this can contribute to community well being and economic empowerment. 

We have developed highly successful performance programs with communities in metropolitan, regional and remote Australia, New Zealand, Vanuatu, North America, Canada, Hawaii and Hong Kong.

Cicada works with experienced musicians, music practitioners, record producers and engineers, hip hop artists, story tellers, singers, songwriters, graphic designers, film makers, video directors, photographers, community workers and social workers.
